Gabrielle Vidal, the lawyer of Cher, stated during the hearing on Friday that a payment from the trust is currently pending. She emphasized the urgent need for the establishment of a conservatorship, stating that it is crucial for Cher’s well-being.
However, Uzcategui stated, “I am not convinced.”
On Thursday, she mentioned that Cher’s legal team was unwilling to share information with Allman’s lawyers. Cher’s attorneys stated that they had concerns about confidentiality and decided to share the documents with Allman’s court-appointed attorney instead.
In a legal document submitted before the hearing, Allman stated that a conservatorship is not required. He acknowledged issues with substance abuse and reckless spending, but clarified that he is currently receiving medical treatment, has been sober for over three months, regularly attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and is willing to undergo drug testing.
The statement stated, “Although I appreciate my mother’s love and support and acknowledge that she believes she is acting in my best interest as the proposed conservator, I do not require her unrequested assistance or support at this moment.”
On Friday, Allman appeared in court and only briefly responded to the judge’s inquiries. His legal team chose not to make a statement following the proceedings.
Cher was absent. Her lawyers did not promptly reply to a request for a statement.
